In Plant (879 pages, 33 days) Höflich and her mother discuss the transcript of an 18th-century witch trial that took place in a family-owned property. By cutting up and piecing back together historical facts, familial memories and mundane images of the site, different registers of the story are brought into focus. Trauma is transmitted through generations, “both literally as a file, and as a lurking presence that demands to be seen”, claims Höflich.
